[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 1162

post #11611 of 25943
Just curious before i get my gpu to test,
If im running 2 qnix screens, does the resolution become higher than 1440p?
If i overclock them, should i try and overclock them on the same hz? Because it will be from only one gpu.
Is there anything i need to do different to the overclock guide for dual monitors?

You aren't gonna be able to run 2x 1440p screens @ a decent frame rate on any single gpu. You are taking about eyefinity or whatever the NVidia equivalent is I assume?

Hi id be buying a non reference r9 290 when it comes out. I will only be gaming on one screen and the other is for other purposes like web browsing or work.
I thought that would have been fine.
Whoops, what a waste of money lol

oh, if you are just gaming on one and using the other for browsing or whatever it will be fine. It will slow down games maybe 1-3 fps or something but that is it.

a 290 will work great. I'm loving my 290x with my 1440 qnix.

For many games you may have to modify the game config file to enable a 4K resolution. Many games to date do not yet have proper support for 4K resolutions. Also if your 4K downsampled resolution uses a non native refresh rate(like 52hz or something) you will need to add a resolution to CRU fo that refresh at a native resolution for it to show up properly in games/applications(like entering 2560x1440@52hz).

Lastly it looks horrible since you are very likely on the desktop and no-one really wants to anti-alias the desktop since it blurs everything a bit and shrinks the UI way too low. However in games downsampling is the best method by far to implement AA(even though it is the most resource hog and brute force attack method).

Once you set it up into eyefinity or surround it will only load 1 color profile on restart. It can't load all 3.
The Spyder loader is not that good IMO. I use Color Profile Keeper to load multiple color profiles and it works.

Windows loader and Nvidia's LUT is 8-bit, so that causes banding. AMD's LUT is 10-bit (there are hacks to enable 10-bit monitor support on AMD cards even), so they can use dithering to avoid banding on 8-bit monitors.

So, avoid Windows loader and use external loaders like dispwin (ArgyllCMS) and CPK.

Also, try to shift away to using HCFR and dispcalGUI + ArgyllCMS, they're superior and allow multi-monitor calibration easily.

Well yeah thats what i thought until you confused me haha tongue.gif

What i wanted to know was:

1. If im running 2 qnix screens, does the resolution become higher than 1440p?
Or is it still 1440p x 2 monitors, if that makes sense


2. If i overclock them, should i try and overclock them on the same hz? Because it will be from only one gpu.

3. Should i just overclock the one monitor ill be gaming on

4. In general, is there anything i need to do different to the overclock guide for dual monitors that i wouldnt do if i was just oc one screen?

Not necessarily true. Some are tempered glass and glossy. For the 100th time.

And I still have over 3 weeks more to try it out and return for any reason I want. I can still change my mind and get a QNIX (although after a weekend with the ASUS, I doubt that will happen).


My qnix is much better quality than the asus pb278q i had. Few other people have reported the same. Your the first to say the asus is better and to be fair... you haven't seen the qnix in action. Enjoy your monitor. thumb.gif

1. It becomes 5120x1440
2. I have 3 overclocked to the same, why would want one differnet?
3. You can, but its great to have all of them overclocked.
4. Its the same.
